Insurance for Startups (Entrepreneurs)
Entrepreneurship isn’t a job – it’s a lifestyle! And with every life there is a corresponding consequence for every action. It’s sort of stipulated to the invisible manual life gave us when we were born. When we utter the word “insurance”, some of us would cringe at the idea. Perhaps, depending on one’s upbringing do we perceive it as a shield or a threat. Whatever the case, we must deal with it because that’s a grown-up thing to do.
That’s what it means to be responsible and hold your ground as a sole proprietor of your business. Prevention is better than cure and so precaution is better than unawareness. When things go the other way unexpectedly, insurance is the hero to the rescue. In western countries, where insurance is regarded above, it’s not so hard to convince people to get one. It is even required by law and compulsory for all companies.
Within the business premises, insurance should not be taken lightly. Depending on the nature of your business, as the owner you should take extreme measures to guarantee that you are protected or otherwise “covered” whatever negative is likely to happen.
Who Needs Startup Insurance?
Startups are temporary enterprises working to deliver new, innovative products or services in a variety of industries, from art to technology. Despite being enterprises, startups still need to be covered by insurance while they work towards developing scalable business models and becoming full-fledged companies.
